  Mount Rushmore
by Myndo

After all this nature now Mount Rushmore is a man-made Monument. A real big one, too!

From left to right are these the faces of:
George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt and Abraham Lincoln.

The most impressing thing for me was that they managed to give Roosevelt some glasses - can you imagine how hard this is to show in stone? Unfortunately it does not show very good on pictures...

The way to the Visitor Center is lined with the flags of the states in alphabetical order. At the bottom of the poles is also written when they came to the US.

Also interesting is how much they care for the disabled persons here. You have a mini bus system for the short way to the visitor Center, special toilets, everything.

Every movie lover will recognize this place from Hitchcocks "The third man".
